but in san francisco and the bay area and particularly this agency i think it's more so and one of the challenges in san francisco around transportation i can't remember whether it's 28 -- we have too many transit agencies in the bay area and it causes a lot of challenges around -- we are a region and our focus at the transportation authority is san francisco first but also regional connections and making sure we're working well with all of the other agencies in the bay area so it takes a special kind of person to be able to navigate that. in addition internally in san francisco any land use and transportation are linked it's constant work with the mta, with the planning department, with the port, with the public utilities commission and mayor's office and caltrans and bay authority. it's a lot of different personalities, a lot of agencies working together so i think it's so critical for the next director to be someone who can very, very effectively work collaboratively with all of these agencies and help bring them together too because the ta even though there is some project

that live here and work here and a part of this great teamwork we are building in san francisco. and not just what we are presently doing. but building for the future. and in working for the chief and the police officers association. we have already established a six-year hiring plan. many cities across the country haven't figured out how to do that. we have did so. this january i was so proud to see 43 additional officers graduate from the police academy. how long ago have we seen that happen. we are investing in you, the police department. because we know that if we have a successful police department, one that is growing, and one that incurs faith and confidence from residents and friends and businesses. we will be that much more successful. it's my personal pleasure to join you today. i have a couple of officers i get to pin. they have sacrificed their time working with me on the security detail. they had get used to some weird things i had to do. whether it was eating chinese food and cheese cake at the same time. or trying to handle the very high levels of meetings i was r
that addresses a dire crisis for san francisco's city college and what they face this year with their accreditation process. and as we look forward also to a hearing that will be coming up later this month at the board. my resolution that i urge support for would help us pass assembly bill 11 99 authored by assemblyman paul fong, but also sponsored by assemblyman bill ting and tom ammiano as well. city college, as you know, serves one in 10 san franciscans. it has one of our top nursing programs in the state and half of our public school graduates in san francisco start college in higher education there. it also is critical for the future of our work force in san francisco as it trains adult workers and gives them new skills that better their lives and to get better jobs. as we work together to protect and strengthen city college, this resolution is really important in allowing the city college to move forward with more flexibility in its funding. the sanctions that may be placed against city college by the accrediting agency really is being promoted in many ways from effor

and ex-boyfriend. i know that many women's groups from gabrielle a to san francisco women against rape to the filipino women's network and the san francisco domestic violence consortium have been working on this issue for many years. ms. timpanco claire joyce made at least five 911 calls during violent episodes that allegedly perpetrated by her killer and while he was mandated to attend counseling after one of the attacks he failed to complete the batterers's program. police unknowingly released him after a subsequent attack on ms. timpanko. her case thankfully led to -- led to improvements in how we handle domestic violence cases in san francisco. but it's because of the hard work of our antidomestic violence organizations and women's groups and community organizations that we've made progress. but there is so much more to be done and we cannot stand for this conviction to be overturned at the california supreme court. so, i urge you to check in with the women's and antidomestic violence groups as this case moves forward. this decision could have a huge and long-lasting effect not jus
